The Pentax MZ-7 is a light wait heavy-duty automatic 35mil still camera with fully manual functions if you would desire it so. With the Pentax MZ-7, Pentax provide all the lovely automatic functions found on all the MZ models (except the MZ-N) the frame of the camera is a mix of plastic and metal, which makes the camera quite durable in ruff as well as preserved environments. It is the perfect 35-mil camera for Students, Amateur and Professionals or throws who just wants to take well exposed pictures without worrying to much about exposure settings. The double exposures is also a very lovely creative contribute. If you are looking to buy an automatic 35 mil, with all the traditional features and a professional touch the MZ-7 will certainly pull its wait without pulling to out of your pocket.
This is an excellent and fun camera to use. I first thought the illuminated control dial was a gimmick, but it really is useful in dim light or when doing night photography. This one has all the features one could want, full auto and manual modes, picture modes, auto pop up flash, it even can do multiple exposures and can, with extra accessory, use a wireless remote shutter release. Exposures are right on the spot. Metal lens mount and many metal reinforcements ensures a long life. In my personal opinion, this camera feels more solid than the competition from Canon and Minolta in this market segment. I like this camera, excellent for beginners, snapshooters and photo amateurs.
